To all the mothers and all those who have mothers, I hope you have a wonderful day!

When I was going through some of my old projects for the current THINK INK CHALLENGE (which is to remake an old project) at ARTFUL INKABLES, I came across this acetate box.

A couple of Christmases ago I made a bunch of these cute little acetate boxes as gifts for just about everyone. The tutorial can be found HERE AT SCS.

This is my remake using the CELESTIAL BODIES SET. I stamped on the acetate before I scored it then very carefully embossed with silver EP. The trick of embossing acetate is to keep the heat source moving in a rapid circular motion. If it is kept in one place too long the acetate starts to melt.

I left the ribbon off the top and made a little knob with a brad.
These make fun teacher's gifts and are pretty easy to make once you get the hang of it.

Have a super week!
